So now the big question is, silicon or teflon tape for the fittings?
Neither Dave, recomend  PTFE paste (permatex product) comes in sqeeze tubes smells like pine works killer

So what's the question?
It's Utah, it's snows and I'm too damn lazy to shovel anymore!!!  :biggrin:
It's my son's Kawasaki KZ1000.

Just wanted to confirm that I didn't want to retire there... The idea is not to work when I retire!!!
But, if a buddy was a cop maybe he could bring an inmate by to clean my driveway???  hehehe

But, back to your engine... Nice job man!!!

Yes indeed, that is purdy.
It doesn't really  matter whether you win or lose...

I think it looks Purdy in person too! Thats the advantage of showing all that polished metal in bright sunlight! It looks.....well, REALLY BRIGHT!!
If It Floats, F@cks, or Flies, Its Cheaper to RENT IT!
